Maybe the worst performance in a big game I’ve ever seen. We don’t deserve to be in the NCAA tournament based on our resume right now.

BUT if we come together, take this loss as a shot to our mental and physical toughness, and come back and beat VCU on the road they will have proved that they deserve to still be fighting.

No matter what happens this season I am proud of everything Goodwin has laid on the line these four years. Same with French. They deserve to go out with their heads held high knowing they gave it their all during this final 3 games plus the conference tourney. And I’m gonna root my ass off for them to do that.

I'm sorry, but this loss is on Ford

I don’t totally agree with this.  We lost by 23 points.  A great game plan isn’t worth 23 points.  The players played awful.

Inexcusable loss.  They got to win the next 3 to pull this out and probably do a semi at least in the A-10 to have a chance.

they just couldn’t shoot worth a damn and that was it.

 

not blaming Ford although he begrudgingly tried to get his starters going when he should’ve just run this depth and kept them in the game early.  French coming back in killed them when they went on that mini run to tighten it back up.

Ford on the postgame:  "Yes, a terrible performance.  They were moving at a different speed than we were.  I didn't have our team prepared.  We did nothing good.  We got to figure out how to play a whole lot better than tonight."

Protecting his team. He didn’t miss any open jumpers or layups.

Agree.

Thats what a coach says after every loss. Nothing more than Coach speak.

That said, he could have done things different. Not a good end game performance. 
But when you should 19-70 it doesn’t matter. No coach is winning that game.

I'm not saying he was good tonight but this is like the 8th game in a row where I've wondered why Linssen doesn't play even even few more minutes.

Because Ford is ride or die with French.

Agreed.  French is so worried about getting fouls that his game is totally different.  He’s not getting nearly as many blocked and altered shots this year.  The same with rebounds.

This is called regression.  He’s gotten worse.

It's the coaches job to have his team ready to play

when you play this bad, it doesnt matter who the coach is.

True. Name a coach who could've won this game.  Brad and Rick would've come up with a gangster defensive scheme but shooting like we did would've made them look stupid too

This.

I really believe this game would have been completely different if the Bills hit any of  their WIDE OPEN looks the first few trips down.

They were ready to play.

They missed wide open looks at an incredible clip the first 3 minutes and that caused them to panic.

That where the game was lost.

The missed shots got into their heads and they couldn’t recover.
